"Why are you pointing your screwdrivers like that? They're scientific instruments, not water pistols."
"Oh, the pointing again! They're screwdrivers! What are you going to do? Assemble a cabinet at them?"
"Are you capable of speaking without flapping your hands about?"
""Timey" what? "Timey wimey"?"

Well, I would, but I'm too busy organising blacklists and intimidating Orson Scott Card, apparently. Maybe later, after I've helped Jude with all the crime he plans to commit. :lol:

I haven't, until I saw the Outhouse/DC article at BC and saw Spider-Rob posting about shit from months--years?--ago.

What's up with this place? Any thread summarizing who's who and what's what?

Dragavon passed away last fall :(

Lots of people left as well. There are some new faces, some old ones, some good things, some bad things.

Also, I beat FragIt in a popularity contest :-D

Good to hear from you. Congrats on the weight loss!

Cool, we'll pencil it in to the calender when your plate is less full. :lol: :wink:

It seems like that. I can only wonder how long that will last now that I'm back and Coyle...

I miss Dragavon. :cry:

That sucks about Dragavon-I really liked him. Was he sick or something?

As for Frag, that doesn't surprise me. Fuckin' Greeks suck at everything.

And thanks - a new wardrobe is an expense worth every penny. Now I feel embarassed for teasing Jack Burton about wearing medium-sized clothes.

Political parties have been doing this tactic to news outlets about time comics caught up with the times.

As do sports teams. That's why most sports news rags have two guys covering the team. One guy writes nice things and maintains a a good profile with the team and their front office, the other can be as critical as possible but doesn't go to the team directly. Usually the second guy is lower profile and covers more than one sport.
